Commercial Township public works employees went to Scott Rector's home Wednesday after Rector had not reported for work all week.
State Police Lt. Stephen Jones says they entered the trailer after smelling a foul odor and found the bodies on the bed. A handgun was also found on the bed.
The dogs, 30-year-old Scott Rector and his 28-year-old wife all had single gunshot wounds.
Jones says Stacy Rector left a note, but he would not disclose the contents.
